    One of my friends gave me his 2600x that he bent the pins on. 3 were broken basically. I took 3 pins off an old sempron cpu, and put them in the cpu socket, carefully put the 2600x in, and bam dual channel worked again.

    Before only A channel worked and would see 16gb but b channel was 100% dead. Its not ideal but it does work.
